Glass Screens

If you use a regular CRT monitor with a glass screen, you can use Windex or another glass cleaner to get rid of stains and stains. Turn off the monitor and unplug it from the wall so that you do not accidentally damage the monitor or shock yourself.

Do not spray detergent directly on the screen. You do not want any liquid to drip under the glass and enter the screen. Spray the detergent on a lint-free or microfiber cloth and gently wipe away stains. Use a vacuum cleaner and lint-free cloth to wipe dust off the rest of the screen.

Make sure the valves are clean and free as well. Use a vacuum cleaner to get lint and dust out of the valves in the monitor.

LCD screens

LCD monitors are not made of glass and therefore need to be treated differently than glass. LCD screens are fragile. Avoid spraying liquid on the screen and do not press directly on the screen or it may crack.

Use a microfiber cloth to remove stains, to reduce the risk of scratches on the screen. Do not use paper towels, as these may scratch the screen. If drying alone with the cloth does not remove all stains, do not use glass cleaner. Instead, you can make a safe cleaning solution with some white distilled vinegar and some distilled water.

Mix these two ingredients together and apply to your cloth. Do not spray detergent directly on the screen. This solution can also be used to clean LCD HDTV screens as well.

Other Surfaces

Some computer monitors have special protective coatings that can be damaged by commercial glass cleaners. If the screen is made of anything other than glass, or has a protective layer, use a microfiber or lint-free cloth dampened with warm water to remove stains.

Use a vacuum cleaner and a lint-free cloth to clean the exterior surfaces of the screen, including valves.
